We stopped for lunch mid afternoon so didn't have a long wait. The wait once our order was placed seemed long but worth the wait. Beans and BBQ were the best we;ve ever had! Wish we had a smokin Daves back in East Tn.

My husband and I ate here while on vacation. I really enjoyed the food. Service was very good as well. Also, had an excellent beer selection. If we are back in the area again someday, will definitely stop here again.

The food was awesome. We had terrible meals for our other two dinners in Estes Park, but this totally redeemed it for us. The ribs were fabulous, awesome mashed potatoes, the only thing that wasn't great was the cornbread. Go early to avoid the rush, but no matter what, just go here!

We have a vacation home in Estes Park and this is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always excellent, the service friendly and prompt and the prices reasonable. If you are a fan of beef brisket, it will not disappoint. It's delicious, tender and is perfectly smoked. One tip - to avoid the crowds (which there always are),... More

We had received several recommendations for Smokin' Dave's. The service once we got to our table was excellent as was the food. All of us enjoyed something different from the menu and all of us were happy with our choices. We went early (we thought) about 5 pm and we still had over an hour wait to get in. There... More

We liked it. It was not the best but pretty good. The restaurant selection in Estes is very limited so this is one of the better ones.

One of us had ribs and the other brisket. Both were excellent. And don't miss the beans! Since we're from Texas, we "know" our barbeque, and this is some of the best we have ever eaten.

We have a vacation home in Estes Park and make a point to visit Smokin Daves every time we visit. We've been dining at this restaurant since 2006 and have never had a bad meal! The food is consistently great and the beer and wine selection is excellent. They are always busy in the evenings, so I recommend getting there... More

Based on the high! marks of Trip Advisor my husband and I ate at Smokin' Dave's BBQ & Tap House July 2014. I have to say upfront we are from Kansas City, Mo. so we are used to the best of the best in barbecue! That being said I would say Smokin Dave's was good but my husband would say... More

We have two teenagers who can be hard to please, so this restaurant met everyone's needs. In fact, our teenage son told us that it was one of the best BBQ meals he'd ever had. Portions are generous, and the waiting time was not long at all.
